Same old funny stuff we learned to love
The Three Stooges are back with more slapstick. Hell, the plot doesn't matter as long as it's funny : ). Watch for the same routines as in their other films...

Marriage Is a Painful Business
Shemp Howard stands to inherit $500,00 if he can get married in a few hours, according to the terms of one of those wills that only appears in the movies. Comic hi-jinx ensue involving him and Moe getting tangled up in a telephone cord, getting poked in the eye by a shaving brush, getting tangled up in piano strings, getting beaten up by a pretty neighbor he proposes to, and a huge battle of prospective brides. He finally ends up marrying the terrible singer from the beginning of the film, but it looks like $500,000 will be small consolation for him. This short has some funny moments, such as Moe and Larry getting caught in a clinch, and the final battle of brides is pretty bizarre, but mostly this is standard Stooges fare.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

That Shemp Line!
This has all that you expect from a Stooges short, but it also has that delectable line from Shemp, that you will use forever...
Shemp: "You're too, too fortissimo."
Girl: (singing) "Is that bad?"
Shemp: "It ain't good!"
I don't know, maybe its just me, but I love that line!
